an ermine collar.
It might be said that the night
of the Military ball was a profit
able one both for the coat or the

collar before arriving at the Ig

West Pointers
Blurb Poems ^
Want to memorize poetry and
old tried jokes and recite them
to a heckling audience ?
No ? Well, neither do most of
the iowerclassmen at the “West
Point of the Air.” But they do it.
because it's a part of Randolp
field's jealously guarded aviation
cadet tradition.
In addition to memorizing
poems and anecdotes for the edi
fication of the upper class at
mealtime, “dodoes” are prohibited
certain walks reserved for upj^v
classmen, address their seniors
with utmost respect, and act as
“gunners” at all meals.
The “dodo” nearest the empty
dish immediately assumes the
role of “gunner,” raising his hand
into “firing” position. This signal
brings a civilian waiter. When,
the dish is returned, heaped with
potatoes, the “dodo” announces
with dignity: "Sir, the creamed
potatoes have arrived.”
The upper class, also, recog
nizes traditions in favor of the
“dodoes.” Its members respect
the recreation hall of lower class
men as sacred territory, and they
unfailingly — though sometimes
sarcastically—address each “do
do” as “Mister.”
“They call it a fair arrange
ment,” one lowerlassman de
clared. “We recite Hamlet while
they heckle, and in return they
call us ‘Mister.’ But just wait!”
